Phoenix

Such an enjoyable film.  It was hard not to keep saying “why doesn’t she push the issue” throughout the middle part of the film.  As the film goes on you start to see where this is all going (of course you probably should have trusted the directory by then anyway) and as the slow burn continues we eventually get the payoff.  The end of the film is simply fantastic.  The acting is also top-notch.
